The Boom Operator is the person in the recording team who is responsible for moving and operating the boom microphone for simultaneous capture of sound signals. It is usually used more during video or movie shooting. Because they need to use the boom microphone to accurately capture the audio signal in a specific picture, and to ensure that the boom microphone does not appear in the video picture, the physical and aesthetic requirements of the personnel are relatively high.
